This is My Next has a scoop that the next version of the Android OS might be called “Jelly Bean.” This is in line with Google’s habit of alphabetically naming their Android firmware updates after desserts or sugary snacks. They don’t know what the version number is however — indeed, no one knows the Ice Cream Sandwich version number either.
According to This is My Next’s source, some of the more intriguing features for Ice Cream Sandwich may be postponed to Jelly Bean, which sounds like some features might not be ready yet for Ice Cream Sandwich’s October release date. This is all rampant speculation of course, and we’re sure to get more details once the first Ice Cream Sandwich phones debut later this year.
